Players will use a speedboat equipped with a cannon to use against the other water vehicles. The stages have graduated difficulty and the objectives vary in each level, with some levels ending with a boss fight. During the races, the player will need to avoid obstacles in the middle of the river and the riverbank while beating a timer. Power-ups are located throughout the levels that will increase your speed or upgrade your weapons. You can also attack other boats and go airborne using a ramp. In the bomb defusing levels, you need to move four bombs to a specific site on the map. In the last mode, you must destroy the enemy vehicles before they pull the swimmers to the side of the lake. If any swimmers are pulled over halfway to the end of the lake, they must be returned to the center of the lake manually. The player will lose a life if the objective is failed.
